The Racists At The Synod

featheredOn October 21, 2019 two men took pagan statues from a Roman Catholic Church and tossed them from a bridge into the Tiber River. It was taped and is available on Youtube. Since then there have been those who recognize these actions as heroism, and those who seem offended and vindictive about these events.

Most amusing, of course, is that those who claim to be offended, mostly white, are again yelling racism. This in the middle of a “synod” about the Amazon region where bishops are walking around in feathered hats, and allowing pagan idols into Churches under the pretense of ecumenism. The people of the Amazon, though, mainly live in cities, attend Churches, and gave up pagan idols when their ancestors learned of Jesus Christ.

They claim that the people left living far from the cities cannot understand the message of Christ, that the faith must be watered down, dressed up, and it must go native by changing the liturgy or the celibacy of the clergy, or the usual grab-bag of modernist demands.  This implies a people who cannot grasp the good news of Jesus Christ unless it too is given a feathered headdress. It is demeaning to the Amazonians and is racism of the worst kind–the kind that seeks to step between them and their eternal salvation.

KrautlerMeanwhile, Protestant religions, which appear to take the mission of Jesus Christ much more seriously than those running His Church these days, are gaining members by presenting the Gospel unadorned. And they are gaining members with little problem, indeed even from the Church.  There is no problem with the people of the Amazon which needs solving.  There is no problem with the message and mission of Jesus Christ.  There is a problem with a Church run by modernists, indeed hippies gone wild, who, it is increasingly clear, are men who stand against Christ and are unwilling to share His message.  Indeed men who bark “racism” at the removal of idols that risk the souls of all concerned, as if they knew how the term really applied here.

There is a Catholic mission to the Amazon which has had no baptisms over decades, there are Amazonians thirsting for the words of Christ, there are souls at stake, and the Church of Pope Francis is playing dress-up in Rome instead of doing the hard work of bringing the message of Jesus Christ, the sacraments of the Church, the traditions of the ages to a people.

That is the racism the Church should be most concerned about.

A Call For a Supernatural Reaction

Fra Angelico Final Judgment


While it was a worldly force that may have found its way into the Church regardless, modernism, the mother of all heresies, a philosophy that eschews the supernatural aspects of the faith, began creeping into the Church early in the last century.  That is, if not all the way back to the “Enlightenment.”  Regardless, it was finally powerful enough to exert its influence in the 1960s, coinciding with the Second Vatican Council.  As the world became post-Christian and less supernaturally aware in the decades following the counsel, this toxic worldview spread within the Church with less suspicion and increasing vigor.

From The Pastor: Why Don’t Priests Blow The Whistle?

Below are two recent bulletin articles of Fr. Edwin Palka, found in the Epiphany of Our Lord Catholic Church in Tampa, Florida’s bulletins of July 29 and August 5, 2018 and shared by Father in a Facebook post on his page.  Fr. Palka is the pastor at the main Traditional Latin Mass parish in the Diocese of St. Petersburg, a Diocese long under the stewardship of Bishop Robert Lynch, who wrote and acted publicly of his opposition to the Latin Mass (see here).  The current bishop, Bishop Parkes, has attended the parish and done confirmations there in the traditional rite.


From the Pastor: Why Don’t the Priests Blow the Whistle?
Bulletin article, July 29, 2018

From The Pastor 1One question that was asked after last week’s homily was, “Why don’t ‘good’ priests and ‘good’ bishops blow the whistle on the abusive priests and bishops?” Many people still don’t (I believe most priests still don’t) understand just how evil the active homosexual or homosexual activist (“AH/HA” from here on out) priests and bishops are.

Not understanding the extent of their depravity and wrongly thinking that they are simply “normal” men who just struggle with their sexual desires and sometimes might fail to remain chaste but are really, truly repentant when it happens and strive to “confess my sins, do penance and amend my life, amen,” they cannot possibly grasp the hellish depths to which the AH/HA clergy will go to persecute, lambaste, punish, humiliate and blackmail anyone who stands in their way or threatens their way of life.

The Crusades: Re-Thought Or Re-Written?

templarThe Crusades are like White Castle hamburgers. Either you love them or you hate them. Of course, given the secular, anti-Christian education most people are subjected to these days, the overwhelming majority of people hate them as “Eurocentric” imperialism.

However, on what basis were they bad?

First of all, what were the Crusades? They were wars in which the Crusade Indulgence was granted by the Pope.  While most people who hear the term think only of the Crusades to retake the Holy Land from the jihad, there were Crusades in other lands as well.  There were Crusades against the jihad in the Iberian Peninsula, normally referred to as the Reconquista. There was a Crusade preached against the Albigensian Cathari in Languedoc in the South of France. There were the Northern Crusades, including the Wendish, Livonian, Swedish, Danish, and Prussian Crusades, and a Crusade against the Bogomils in Bosnia.

However, since the average person with a modern, secular education only knows of the Eastern Crusades and, possibly, the Reconquista, I will be discussing only the Crusades against the jihad in this article.

It is important to remember that at the founding of Islam by Muhammad, the world looked like this:

All of the purple area (fitting, it being the Imperial color) was Christian. This was pre-Great Schism, so while all of the Empire was Christian, not all Christian lands were part of the Empire (an important point later).
